A conventional hydrocelectomy includes excision and subsequent eversion of the sac, which can be associated with a large scrotal oedema, haematoma and infection, depending on the magnitude of the manipulation [1]. Postoperative discomfort and temporary limitation of normal activities are major disadvantages of open hydrocelectomy. Efforts aimed at avoiding these complications, e.g. plication and window techniques, have resulted in high recurrence rates [2]. We present a novel outpatient procedure that offers easy removal of even huge hydroceles through a small skin incision, minimizing the risk of complications,
with reduced postoperative scrotal discomfort, fast recovery, and a low risk of recurrence.
